It's a new month, and while that doesn't mean much apart from did you pay your rent/mortgage as far as milestones go (time is a flat circle. Or something), it does mean that Arsenal have put November's travails behind them and will look to refocus as they head into the most ridiculous stretch of games in the world.
Options are fairly thin on the ground; everyone's hurt, so Arsenal might start playing some of their more fit stewards, or maybe they can talk Steve Bould into suiting up. Anyway, Arsene says that his team is "up for the challenge" of playing without most anybody whose name you recognize, so all we can do is take him at his word and hope for the best. Sports!
